About I'll Be Okay
I'll Be Okay is an emotional ballad about the personal struggles of depression. From feeling insecure about your appearance to questioning your existence, Matteson draws from personal experience to create this emotional and powerful ballad. Inspired by her personal experience and words from her mother, Matteson's vulnerable lyrics give the listener an inside look at her experience with depression.
"I've known how it feels to be in the dark. Where you question your existence and question whether things will ever get better. The one thing that kept me going was my mom listening to me and understanding how I felt. She always told me that it may not seem like it now, but things will get better. This song was the first song I wrote about my personal experience with depression and I hope that by sharing my story, it will help others to find strength to continue living their lives.
